BETTER OBLIVION COMMUNITY CENTER - BETTER OBLIVION COMMUNITY CENTER VINYL (LP)
Release Date: 22nd February 2019
The self-titled debut album from Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes) and Phoebe Bridgers’ new collaborative vehicle, Better Oblivion Community Center. The album is a shining light of all that makes the two artists great in their own way and also in how well the two work together. Emotional, meaningful country-tinged folk-rock that will be hard-pressed to top this year!
FFO: Bright Eyes, Phoebe Bridgers, boygenius, Big Thief
"Better Oblivion Community Center is a brand new band comprising the formidable talents of Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, two of the most lauded American songwriters of the past several years. Written and recorded in Los Angeles during the summer of 2018, their self-titled debut album is released on Dead Oceans. The pair first collaborated on Bridgers’ 2017 single, Would You Rather, taken from her acclaimed debut album Stranger In The Alps. They teamed up again for a recording of Oberst’s LAX in the fall of 2018. Co-produced by Bridgers, Oberst and long time Oberst / Bright Eyes collaborator Andy LeMaster and mixed by John Congleton, Better Oblivion Community Center features the work of several talented friends, including Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and Carla Azur (Autolux, Jack White) among others."
